lyrics

He crouches
To listen
To Borges
Who whispers straight into his ears

The details
Instructions
And plans for
The grandest of all palaces

And he’s building his castle just outside of town
To fill it with dancers magicians and clowns

The arches
And towers
And windows
And staircases that lead nowhere

The doorways
And corridors
And galleries
And passageways into the past

And he’s building his castle just outside of town
To fill it with dancers magicians and clowns
Yes he’s building his castle just outside of town
To fill it with dancers magicians and clowns

Everyone said it was out of character
Some blamed the rabies
Others the alignment of the stars

They were such a harmonious couple

The bite wounds were severe

The vet said I’m sorry
She had to put Borges down
And with him went the castle just outside of town
